Subject: [sf-lug] World of Goo ported to Linux

   This is good news, because it is a really popular game that could help
   spread Linux.

   christian.einfeldt writes "Lovers of both games and Free Open Source
   Software will be pleased to see that the popular World of Goo has been
   released for Linux. Designed by a small team of two ex-Electronic Arts
   developers, Kyle Gabler and Ron Carmel, who used their entire combined
   savings of $10,000.00 USD to create the gooey game aimed at guiding goo
   balls to salvation. The developers built their goey world with open-source
   technologies such as Simple DirectMedia Layer, Open Dynamics Engine for
   physics simulation, and TinyXML for configuration and animation files.
   Subversion and Mantis Bug Tracker were used for work coordination. Blogger
   Ken Starks points out that the release of this popular game for Linux
   could be a big step toward ending the chicken-and-egg problem of a dearth
   of good games that run natively under Linux."
